We first met Anne & Chris while shooting in one of our favorite locations, New Orleans. They were attending Lisa & Nick’s wedding and although we had no idea at the time, we were ecstatic to get an email later, asking if we were available for their Palm Springs wedding at Cree Estate. Of course we were absolutely thrilled and after getting to know them through Skype we were sure they would become good friends over time.
Their wedding also came at a perfect time, when Sarah and I had a bit of a “break” and decided to road trip from Austin to California, stopping in some of our favorite places like Marfa, Sedona and White sands, and finally staying with our good friends Micah & Megan in L.A. Many people think we are crazy for driving some of the places we do, but the open road is where Sarah and I feel most at home. There’s just something special about the downtime in the car, the people along the way and the memories created.
OK, back to Anne & Chris. It’s so hard to put into words just how “loveable” these two are without meeting them in person. Chris’s personality is magnetic, intelligent and poised with smart humor. You could easily tell by his groomsmen and other friends, he was a genuine guy and could not have been more perfect for Anne. Even though he’s a Seahawks fan… As for Anne, it is hard to meet someone with such a glowing personality, she wore her emotions on her sleeve and could not have been more fun to be around. She had Sarah and I in stitches throughout the day and it was practically impossible to stop taking pictures with all of her photogenic expressions. When it came to their wedding, every detail reflected them perfectly. From bocce ball and flamingo glasses, to neon signs and a first dance that asked their guests to surround them with sparklers. It then led into two of the best speeches ever combined with Anne’s dad’s toast that had everyone laughing at one moment and in tears of joy in the next. Finally the night broke into an incredible dance party with their sweet pooch making several appearances to cut a rug
Thank you again Anne & Chris, we can’t wait til the next time we are in California or you come and visit us in Austin! PS – We would like to thank Lisa Sipe for being wonderful to work with!!
